Bill Croy, a retired minister andnative of Ottawa, Ohio, threw out
th crmoial rst pitch at th Grat
American Ball Park on Sunday, July22. Bill is in the advanced stagesof ALS disease and was chosen torepresent those individuals in cen-
tral Ohio afictd with this trmial
disease and to represent those profes-sionals looking for a cure.I cannot exactly remember the
rst tim I mt Bill, bt it had to b
sometime in September of 1967 onthe campus of Ohio Northern Uni-versity. He was on the football squadand I was hoping to make the basket-ball team. Bill was a small town kidfrom Putnam County and my beingthe same from Mercer County helpedus soon make connections, and afriendship developed.It is often hard to stay in touchwith people when we are separatedby distance, especially those who aregood for our well being. Bill, to myknowledge, dated only one girl inhigh school and college. He chosethe perfect life mate in Dorothy. Afew visits to their home after college,during one of which I broke a chair,the usual Christmas cards and yearlysummaries, kept us in touch but notclose enough.It probably was the only Christ-mas card I have ever read threetimes. It actually said after eachreading that Bill had been diagnosedwith amyotrophic lateral sclero-sis, ALS, or more commonly called
Lo Ghrig’s Disas. This disas
progressively attacks the nerves thatcontrol the voluntary and involuntarymuscles. Now, as in the time of the
Yak’s Iro Hors, thr is o prs
-ent cure for this fatal disease. At the
Ciciati Rds’ Park, I dscribdBill’s sitatio ad th fact that h
was going to throw the opening
pitch for today’s gam. My scrity
worker/host responded, “What cour-age. If that were me I would prob-ably be home with the blanket pulledover my head.”Without a doubt, Bill Croy is themost positive person I know. Hegreets every person and every situa-tion with a smile on his face and anidea why things will work out for the
bst. Wh I rst spok with Bill at
Cincinnati, I told him of my admira-
tio for his attitd i facig all lif’s
fastballs as well as curves and brush-back pitches with equal skill. He
waitd a scod ad th said, “This
one was hardest by far and took sometime.” It was ultimately a typical re-
spos by Bill to his illss. “W 

John M. Yoder, Financial Advisor 
Within a marriage, a man and a woman’s nancial circumstances are generally pretty much equal. But if adivorce occurs, the woman’s situation tends to be somewhat more challenging than that of her ex-spouse. Andthat’s why, during this major life transition, you may want to meet with a professional nancial advisor to go over your spending needs and your cash ow, so that you know what you absolutely need today — and how you canplan for tomorrow.Before we get into some possible steps you can take, let’s look at some of the reasons that women may fareworse than men, nancially speaking, following a divorce:* Lower income — The average woman’s family income drops by 37% after divorce, according to the U.S.Census Bureau. In many cases, divorce exacerbates a situation in which women were already trailing men inearnings. In fact, women still only earn 77 cents for each dollar earned by men, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.* Smaller retirement accounts — The average balance on women’s dened contribution plans (such as 401(k)plans) is only 60% of men’s average balances, according to LIMRA, a nancial services research organization.Of course, “averages” are just that — averages. But whether you recognize yourself in the above numbersor not, consider these suggestions:* Create an emergency fund. Try to put six months’ to a year’s worth of living expenses in a liquid account.Once you’ve established this emergency fund, you won’t have to dip into long-term investments to pay for unexpected costs, such as an expensive car repair, a new furnace or a large medical bill.* Contribute as much as you can afford to your retirement accounts. Even if you will eventually receivesome of your ex-spouse’s retirement funds, you need to take full advantage of your own savings opportunities —because it’s pretty hard to save “too much” for retirement. If money is tight, it won’t always be easy, but contributeas much as you can to your 401(k) or similar employer-sponsored retirement plan. At a minimum, put in enough toearn the employer’s match, if one is offered.* Rebalance your investment portfolio. If you are now investing for yourself, you’ll want to take a close lookat your asset mix to make sure it is appropriate for your situation. For example, your risk tolerance may be quitedifferent than that of your ex-spouse’s. So if you now have total control over an investment portfolio, you need tomake sure it reects your needs and preferences. Consequently, you may need to “rebalance” your holdings.* Above all, get some help. As mentioned above, now is a good time to meet with a nancial advisor. Andif you don’t have much experience in managing your nances, you may even nd it helpful to work with a trustcompany, which can collaborate with your nancial provider to manage your assets and also provide a varietyof other functions, including bill payment and record keeping. A trust company’s services can prove especiallyvaluable to you and your family should you ever become incapacitated.
